Need Binoculars for Alaska Cruise

Postby artbysea on Wed Nov 30, 2005 10:25 am

Hi, I am trying to buy some compact binoculars for my Dads cruise to Alaska. Hopefully under $100. I know he will spend most his time looking at the scenery while onboard as well as off the ship. Need help in finding the right compact binoculars that can fit in his jacket pocket and are lightweight. He wears glasses. Also he was in car crash and his vision in one eye is different than the other one. I dont know if he would need individual eye focus? Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi

I highly recommend a waterproof model for that application. Can't quite squeeze under $100, but these two are close. They are also optically quite good, considering the price and will both have enough eye relief for use with glasses.
